    Thanks for the heads up. Not everyone has the app and businesses are required to have an alternative system for those who don't. Anyway, it's against the law to refuse access to those with disabilities. ;)

    It would seem that Enterprise is testing today in X-Sector:


    With the season having been extended until 15th November, I think we could be getting rides in on Enterprise well before the end of the season! An opening soon would certainly help to ease those half-term crowds, anyway!

    That's an oversimplification

    Out of interest, what about those without a mobile?
    I have had no problems giving paper details at any decent dining establishment, happy to give contact address and landline number every time, every place was happy to take our custom.
    Then again, the first place I was refused service at a bar for having the crazy notion of paying in cash was at the Towers.

    They ask with a paper form for name and phone number, presumably they would ask for post code and check?

    No. It's against the law to refuse access to somebody BECAUSE of their disability. That is a totally different thing.

    The park are, rightly, insisting that people scan the app before entering restaurants and refusing access to those in high risk tiers. I would imagine any paper alternative to this (not that I have seen one) would also require a home address to be provided and checked.

    According to the Yougov site and requesting details for track and trace, a postal address is only required if the person does not have a phone number or email address. Only a name and contact number is required, failing that an email address, and failing that a postal address. It is advised that No additional data should be collected, so once the phone number or an email address has been been provided, they should not be asking for postal addresses to 'check' on your status.

    Also, they are incorrect in insisting people scan in using NHS track and Trace, and if they do use the NHS track and Trace, then can only check the phone screen to see that they have checked in, not what they 'Status' is.

    It's not our fault we're in Tier 3, and we didn't ask for it. As @Vik said above Towers cannot force people to use the app and cannot ask for certain details. If they do, then they are actually breaking the law.

    Yes, as travelling out of a Tier 3 area isn't illegal. if it was, we wouldn't go.

    Nah, we'll just go to one of the takeaway outlets if they really won't budge. ;)

    Cummings actions - and worse, the way he was defended by the cabinet - reallty broke the "all in this together" narrative and replaced it with "One rule for them and another for us".

    This discussion belongs in the Coronavirus topic.

    but I disagree. The majority are just selfish

    Indeed. I appreciate it's very easy to stray back on to the topic of COVID as it is a factor in pretty much anything at the minute, but if we could stick to Alton Towers discussion please, that'd be grand.

    Thanks.

  20. I am a woman.

    BTW you are responsible for your behaviour, saying "but oh little Jamie did it too" is the action of a young mind. Set a good example for your friends and family. That is your responsibility. I would wager many who do not wish to follow the rules would have found another excuse.
